With just one week left in the regular season, the NFC playoff picture is going to be interesting as it plays out over the final slate of games. Four of the six seeds are up for grabs, with two division champions yet to be crowned.

The NFC East and NFC North are the divisions that have yet to be claimed, with five teams competing for two spots. The losers of the divisional race will be eliminated from contention.

In the Wild Card picture, the San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals are battling it out. The Cardinals are currently on the outside looking in, but they could find their way into the postseason with a perfect storm in Week 17.

What are your chances of making the postseason?
